Soul Sunday pretends

27 01 2008

…I didn’t slash my thumb last night at a Mediterranean cooking workshop and focus on a ‘simply sublime’ track as Soul-Sides so rightly observed. Released in 1974 by former aircraft mechanic Bill ‘Ain’t no sunshine’ Withers, Can we pretend is one of those hard to find and forgotten soul classics that just makes sense. Lyrically and musically.

I discovered this tune on ?uestlove’s otherworldly babies makin’ babies compilation, the brilliance of which cannot be overstated. The good people at BBE have sold out their entire stock (guess who bought the last copy?) but have released (and apparently sold out too, damn it) volume II.

Preview this week’s Soul Sunday track at BBE or download at zshare.
